    Is Windows 8.1 Update installed


    Hi

    I tried to install a stand alone download of Windows 8.1 Update but I get a message that it is installed,

    I'm do not see how it could be installed, this install of my OS is only 1 day old and I have only downloaded and installed the 8.1 SP this morning.

    When I look in Installed update the KB2919355 is shown as being installed but the date is the 19th March,
    which was before it was released, I believe.

    How can I be sure I have the update installed?

    Thanks

    Daniel

    Hello Daniel,

    Another way to verify is to see if you have the new Power button on your Start screen like in step 2 Option One below.

    Hi Shawn, thanks for your help, it looks like the Start screen in step 2 Option One, but any ideas on why it is dated 19th march?

    There are six updates listed as Installed On 19th march, the rest are dated with todays date 10 April (my time).

    I have formatted and clean installed twice since the 19th march.

    Cheers

    Daniel

    I'm not sure why it has that date for you. Did you install any of the leaks that came out about that time?

    Hi Shawn

    this suggests malware, I am not aware of installing anything that was not a part of a Windows 8 and Windows Update install nor have I downloaded anything except from the MS site.

    I did install Windows 8.1 Update on the day it was released, this was done through Windows Update but I have formatted and clean installed twice since then.

    Cheers

    No worries then. I just mentioned it because there was a leak of the official update around that time that some installed.

    Did you have the power button on your Start screen?

    Hi Shawn

    thanks, yes I do have the power button on the start screen so I guess all is good.

    Yep, you would have Windows 8.1 Update installed then.

    Thanks Brink - this was really helpful, as I was also trying to find a way to verify if I'd been updated. (I had)

    Is there any reason not to just keep using the shortcuts I set up (via your awesome tutorials) on my start screen?

    Hello way2ob2se,

    Sure, you can safely continue to use the shortcuts if you like. Windows is yours to make as you like.
